I really liked this book, particularly when they talk about the dragons. Toothless was adorable and a little disobedient! My favourite character was Hiccup. He was very brave and he even made a sea dragon sneeze! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes dragons.

i love all of the how to train your dragon books, movies and characters but my all time fave character is toothless the book is about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is a truly extraordinary Viking hero known throughout Vikingdom as the Dragon Whisperer but it wasn't always so. Travel back to the days when he was just a boy, the quiet and thoughtful son of the Chief of the Hairy Hooligans. Can Hiccup capture a dragon and train it without being torn limb from limb? Join the adventures as the small boy finds a better way to train his dragon and becomes a hero! i recommend this book to anyone who loves dragons and reading about vikings. i recommend for ages 6 and up
